Letter Qq Week!

city_skyline_08

What we are learning

This week we will focus on the city. Using the topic “The Busy, Busy City,” we will read stories about what it is like to live in the city and how people get around there.

Our new letter this week is letter Qq (queen, quarter, quilt).  We will also celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday on Thursday!

Please continue to review all the other letters and letter sounds taught this year (S,T,P,O,Y.B,U,F,X, W,Z,M,A,R,C). We have already learned over half of the alphabet!

Reading Skills

This week we will continue the sight words “I see a.” We will also begin “he” and “she.” We will be discussing, identifying, writing and using these words in a sentence.  Please work on identifying this word in print and writing it on paper.

Home Activities

Qq Hunt Look at magazine and newspaper headlines with your child. Circle the words that begin with capital Q and lowercase q.  Count the number of letters you find.  You can also cut out or draw pictures of words beginning with Qq.

Stories We will read the story City Mouse and Country Mouse this week. Ask your child to tell what happens when the country mouse visits the city.  Read other books about the city with your child.  Discuss what your child sees in the illustrations.

Coins We will continue to learn about money this week. Talk about each coin with your child and have them sort coins. Have your child count pennies.  You could set up a “store” at home.  Assign items a price and have your child count out pennies to “buy” an item.  (This could also be good for behavior reinforcement- student earns a penny each day he/she is on green/silver/gold and can buy a treat at home once he/she has 5 pennies.)
